In Russia, the concept of “child benefit”, many families consider relative and even ephemeral, its size is too small. But even these meager monthly sums are inaccessible to the majority of Russian moms and dads.

To begin with, it must be said that every child is theoretically entitled to child allowance. To whom it is supposed to be in practice, the rules for his appointment and reception, established by the Ministry of Social Protection of the Population, meet. They say that the family only has the right to receive these payments if the average income per 1 family member does not exceed the subsistence minimum. This minimum is determined 1 time per quarter in each subject of the Russian Federation. These figures are published in the press, so, to know them is not at all problematic.

If you are interested in who is paying child allowance and if you can get it, then consider whether the average income of your family does not exceed the subsistence minimum. Add up all the amounts that you receive on a monthly basis: salaries, scholarships, pensions, grants, alimony, etc.And then divide the resulting amount by the number of members of your family. It turns out "per capita income", which must be compared with the cost of living. If it is less, go get an allowance. To do this, you will have to collect a package of documents, which will contain all proofs of family income.

And the second, very important question that arises from parents and employers - who pays the child allowance, the state or the company where the mother or father works? It turns out that the employer has absolutely nothing to do with it. Child allowance is paid by the Social Insurance Fund, and it also provides instructions for its accrual. Therefore, the directors of enterprises can be calm, the budget will not suffer from the kids employees.
